Talismans are carried on the person or kept in the place that is the desired sphere of influence such as in a bag, displayed in your room or house. The terms amulet and talisman are often used interchangeably, but a talisman is sometimes defined as an engraved amulet.

You can also have natural talismans that are different kinds: precious stones, metals, teeth and claws of animals, bones, plants, and so on. Man-made talismans, equally varied, include religious medallions and small figurines. Among believers Talismans are thought to derive power from their connection with natural forces, from religious associations, or from being made in a ritual manner at a favourable time.
